How to Increase Your Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

When most people think about humidity, it’s normally the outdoor humidity and how muggy or dry it appears to be. But when you ask any of our expert furnace service technicians about home comfort, humidity plays a big role in making us feel comfortable. As the months pass and our indoor air transforms, humidity levels change as well. For your best comfort, the humidity levels in your home must be between 35 percent and 50 percent.

Dry air during the cooler months in Nashville can also affect respiratory comfort, as it can dry out the mucous membranes in your throat and nose, possibly meaning uncomfortable scratchy throats and noses. It also could mean that there may be an increased risk for colds and respiratory issues.

Check out these benefits of ideal humidification, and speak with your Donelson Air Service Experts technician during your annual furnace service appointment to find out more.

Ideal humidity levels in your home can:

  • Save you from having to concerned about harming wood furniture, flooring and paint in your home
